Mrs. McKinzie's eighth grade class took a special trip to Springfield on Tuesday with Ms. Boyd, Ms. Rice, Mrs. McKinzie, and Sr. Mary Paul McCaughey, the Superintendent of Catholic Schools. The group was able to meet with Speaker of the House Michael Madigan and attempted to persuade him to consider legislation that will make Catholic school more affordable for lower-income families. As you can see from the photos, they met many influential people and ended up getting an extensive tour of Illinois's Capital Building!
